The service is not welcoming, we were waiting for the host in almost empty restaurant, we asked for another table and got a no. The bread was cold from the freeze, some of the side dishes were cold too. The meat was not as good as we tasted in Argentina. It’s a remote place and they offer a pick up so in a way you are stuck. I will say there are much better options in El Calafate

This was a great restaurant with gorgeous views overlooking the town and sunset. They sent a driver to collect us and return us to our hotel. We ordered the mixed meat plate for 2 and it could easily have fed four, we couldn't eat it all. My husband tried everything but I skipped the blood sausage and intestines (not that adventuresome). The potatoes with onion, bacon, and cream were outstanding as well. Highly recommend this restaurant especially at sunset. Staff were friendly and spoke enough English to let us know what we were eating.

We were on a tour and didn't order off a menu. Served family style. Another Patagonian restaurant with the humongous meat platter. OK, but too much meat for me. This one did have some chicken. Salad and veggies not quite as good as other places we ate. Located out of town with a great view. May be harder to get to if you don't have a car. Wines were nice - had Malbecs and Cabernets. Prices not known so can't comment on value.

Amazing, that’s the only adjective I have to describe the Patagonian lamb. Perfectly cooked, soft taste of the lean meat. Service was amazing, the perfect complement for a 5 Star dinner.
